2010 Geneva Auto Show: New Ford Focus Wagon
"A key strength of the Ford Focus range in Europe has always been its wagon, and its popularity is second only to the five-door," said John Fleming, Ford of Europe Chairman and CEO. "These customers want the extra space and flexibility a traditional wagon provides, yet they still expect all of the technology, great driving dynamics, and superb styling. We believe the new Focus wagon will more than satisfy their requirements in every way."
Additionally, Ford confirmed at the Swiss event that it will develop a Focus global performance vehicle, most likely the wearing the RS designation, which will be equipped with a version of the 4-cylinderd EcoBoost engine family.
"We want to reassure enthusiasts of Focus performance models that we have a plan for them as well," Derrick Kuzak, Ford's group vice president of Product development, added.
"Our commitment is to deliver an exciting performance model of the new Focus on a global basis and using a version of our advanced new Ford EcoBoost petrol direct-injection turbo engine. We're not ready to reveal more details yet, but we recognise how important this model will be in the Focus line-up, particularly for customers in Europe."
